    @Vinay Any news on this?



  • @Joe-Schmitt @Sebastian-Roth
    Thank you for the info, i will try this and let you know the status.
    Could you guys help me with post install script for adding the system to AD and make the AD user as Sudoer with home directory created when login with AD credential first time, which would help me in adding the script while imaging multiple desktops at once.

    On Linux this usually means that the certificate store is “damaged”. Please try reinstalling the whole mono framework and then as well reinstall the fog-client. If that still does not work you need to downgrade the mono version and reinstall fog-client.

    We are working on a fix but this won’t be due to the next major release of the fog-client.





  • @Joe Schmitt, Thank you for your help, i have already installed the client as per the article, however i get the below error on fog.log:

    @Vinay https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=FOG_Client has everything you need;
    for ubuntu: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=FOG_Client#Debian_8.2B.2C_Ubuntu_13.10.2B.2C_and_derivatives

    The client will not manage domain bindings for linux. You can use a bash script Snapin for that though.
